Publisher's Summary

Best-selling author Rick Riordan presents the finale of Kwame Mbalia's trilogy, in which Tristan Strong faces off with his archenemy, King Cotton, once and for all. 

"Imagine if you combined Anansi the Spider, John Henry, and Marvel into, like, one book." (New York Times best-selling author and Newbery Medalist Kwame Alexander)

After reuniting with Ayanna, who is now in his world, Tristan travels up the Mississippi in pursuit of his archenemy, King Cotton. Along the way they encounter new haints who are dead set on preventing their progress north to Tristan's hometown of Chicago. It's going to take many Alkean friends, including the gods themselves, the black flames of the afokena gloves, and all of Tristan's inner strength to deliver justice once and for all. Shocking twists, glorious triumphs, and a cast of unforgettable characters make this series conclusion as satisfying as it is entertaining.

I cant leave a proper review without giving it awa

if you're a fan of Rock Riordan, you have to read this series. its amazing. Keane Mbalia is any artist of the highest tier. I look forward to more books in this genre and hopefully more Tristan Strong.
